Of the 20 official regions of Italy, Calabria is one of the easiest to pick out on a map - it's the "toe" of the "boot" that is peninsular Italy.  The region is home to some of the most fabled beach towns in Italy, on both its northern coast on the Tyrrhenian Sea and its southern coast on the Ionian Sea.  In this magnificent drone video by Luca T, you'll get a captioned tour of some of these stunning seaside towns, namely (in order of appearance)  Zambrone, Riace, Capo Vaticano, Scilla, Tropea, and Isola de Capo Rizutto.

Sorrento, Southern Italy, by Drone


The Sorrentine Peninsula is an appendage of mainland Italy which juts out westward into the Tyrrhenian Sea.  While it's perhaps best known for the Amalfi Coast line of towns on its southern (Gulf of Salerno) side, it's actually named after a town on its northern (Gulf of Naples) side: the town of Sorrento, which you'll see here in this drone video.  A very old town built into a hillside overlooking the water, Sorrento affords excellent views of Mt. Vesuvius, which you'll see at around the 2:25 mark.

 In this beautiful drone video by K idea, you'll get an aerial tour of some of the most well known spots on Italy's Sorrentine Peninsula, an appendage of the mainland in the (southern) Campania region.  The three locations featured are (1) Sorrento, which lies on the north (Bay of Naples) side of the Sorrentine; (2) Positano, probably the most well-known of the towns on the peninsla's south side; and (3) Amalfi, also on the south side, from which this legendary bit of coastline takes its name: the Amalfi Coast.

Here are some great drone views of an idyllic spot near the "toe" of Italy, compliments of contributor Brand07.  Gerace is situated in the Metropolitan City of Reggio Calabria, the westernmost and largest of the five provinces which make up the southern region of Calabria.  The town sits atop a rocky hill near the town of Locri.  Gerace is probably best known for its Norman hilltop castle, which is featured prominently in the video.  According to legend, the town was founded in the 9th century AD by people fleeing a Saracen attack.

ShootMee created this beautiful drone video of Capri, one of the most legendary Mediterranean islands.  It sits at the southern approaches to the Bay of Naples, in the Campania region.  The island was bitterly contested during the Napoleonic Wars, changing hands three times during the period 1806-08 and being heavily damaged in the process.  Beginning in the late 1800's, it became one of the most well-known artist colonies in Europe, earnings reference in many works of literature.

The island of Ischia sits at the northern approaches to the Gulf of Naples in Southern Italy, roughly opposite the smaller island of Capri.  In this drone video by CH drone, you'll get  a bird's eye view of the legendary destination, including the square of Ischia Pont, and the nearby Aragonese Castle, which sits atop an islet connected to the main island via a stone bridge.  This area was a primary filming location for the 1999 movie the Talented Mr. Ripley starring Matt Damon, an adaptation of a 1950's novel.
